Types of Wheel Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys are stationary and change the direction of the force applied. They are commonly used in flagpoles or lifting applications where the direction of the force needs to be altered.

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys are attached to the object being moved and provide a mechanical advantage, reducing the amount of force needed to lift heavy objects. These are often used in cranes or elevators.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to provide an even greater mechanical advantage. They are ideal for applications where heavy loads need to be moved with minimal effort, such as in construction or industrial settings.

Advantages of Using Wheel Pulleys

1. Increased Mechanical Advantage

Wheel pulleys offer a mechanical advantage, allowing users to lift heavy loads with less effort.

2. Energy Efficiency

Using wheel pulleys can help save energy by reducing the amount of force required to move heavy objects.

3. Cost-Effectiveness

Wheel pulleys are cost-effective solutions for lifting and moving heavy loads, making them a popular choice in various industries.

The mold is created to form the shape of the wheel pulley.


The molten material is poured into the mold to create the wheel pulley shape.

Raw Materials

High-quality raw materials are used to ensure the strength and durability of the wheel pulley.


The wheel pulleys are manufactured according to specifications and quality standards.


Each wheel pulley undergoes rigorous testing to ensure it meets performance requirements.

Antirust Treatment

Antirust treatment is applied to protect the wheel pulley from corrosion and prolong its lifespan.

Separate Inspection

Each wheel pulley is individually inspected for quality control purposes.


Final marking is done on the wheel pulley for identification and traceability.

Choosing the Right Wheel Pulley

1. Load Capacity

Consider the weight of the load the wheel pulley will be lifting to ensure it can handle the required capacity.

2. Durability

Choose a wheel pulley made from durable materials to withstand heavy usage and harsh conditions.
